There's a really strong pungent smell here

  • The smell is pretty nauseating, so be aware of that
  • From what I was told, the smell is because they use pigeon droppings as one of the ingredients in the treating the leather
  • The smell is really strong all around the tannery. The leather shop where we saw the tannery from gave us mint leaves to put to our noses to mask the smell, and that helped a lot
